Huron Police Department Announces STEP Graduate Sergeant Terry E. Graham, of the Huron Police Department graduated from the Law Enforcement Foundation’s Supervisor Training and Education Program (STEP) on December 8, 2010. He was one of 25 students attending the seventh session of the training program. STEP trains officers to understand how to change their orientation from a patrol officer to a GRAHAM supervisor. STEP teaches leadership principles that can help them lead their department, respond to crises from a manger’s perspective, and to adapt to responding to the public as a supervisor. The program

Since 2004, 193 Ohio law enforcement supervisors have graduated from STEP. The Law Enforcement Foundation, in cooperation with the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police, sponsors the Supervisor Training and Education Program.

STEP was developed to meet the goal of providing law enforcement execu-

Fire Department Community Education Programs The Huron Fire Department’s public education programs educated 2,200 community members of all ages in 2010. Some of the programs included; CPR/First Aid, Fire Extinguisher Training, Safety Talks, Fire House Tours, Water Safety Day, Safety Town, Fire Prevention Week and our 1st annual Open House. For 2011, we have a lofty goal of more than doubling the number of CPR students we taught in 2011. American Heart Association statistics show that 92% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital. Other statistics show that if more people knew CPR, more lives

could be saved. We are reaching out to community groups and neighborhoods to contact us to schedule a CPR class. Our goal is to equip 500 community members with the knowledge to initiate care to another citizen experiencing cardiac arrest. By recognizing the emergency, calling 911, and initiating CPR, you may ultimately save a life. For more information about the Huron Fire Department education programs check out our website at www.cityofhuron. org or contact the firehouse at 419-4333544 to schedule a class.

tives with innovative and in-depth educational opportunities. Sergeant Terry E. Graham has served with the Huron Police Department for 22 years. His accomplishments during that time have included: Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Bowling Green State University, Erie County Regional SWAT team, Erie County Drug Task Force, Instructor at the EHOVE Police Academy, firearms instructor, four times selected as Officer-of-the-Year, and numerous letters of commendation. Commenting on the value and importance of STEP, Chief John T. Majoy indicated, “The result of Sgt. Graham’s attendance at STEP will be evidenced in his enhanced management and leadership skills. Our agency and community will be the beneficiaries of Sgt. Graham’s accomplishment.”

Fifth grader wins Geography Bee The National Geographic Geography Bee was held at St. Peter School on Tuesday, January 11. Emerging as champion over 29 other participants was fifth grader Jake Bradfield. Seventh grader Jimmy Pajk took second place. When asked about his knowledge of geography, Jake shared that his grandpa liked geography and that had something to do with him liking it, too. Jake will next take the qualifying test to see if he is one of the top 100 scorers in the State of Ohio. That would make him eligible for the state competition to be held later this Spring.

Around Town Traffic Advisory FTMC Donates to Local Schools Due to a water main break at the intersection of Cleveland Road West and Rye Beach Road, motorists can expect minor delays and a detour rerouting traffic. Eastbound and westbound traffic on Cleveland Road will be detoured through the Rye Beach Neighborhood. Motorists should follow the detour signs. Motorists should not use the Rye Beach Shell gas station for shortcutting the detour signs. There is no boil alert at this time.


Search Warrant By Judge Bill Steuk, Huron Municipal Court A search warrant is an order issued by a judge directing certain law enforcement officers to conduct a search at specified premises for specific things or persons. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the government and its agents from making “unreasonable searches” of people, their homes, and their effects. Generally, a search by a governmental agent without a warrant is unreasonable. There are exceptions to this rule. Two examples: an officer reasonably believes that someone is in danger of imminent harm; or an officer is in “hot pursuit” of a suspect. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution states in part “no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Probable cause is the key term in this section. Probable cause can be defined as a practical, common sense decision, given the totality of the circumstances, that there is a fair probability that contraband or evidence of a crime will be found in a particular place. It is the judge’s decision whether or not to approve a search warrant. This is a complicated issue and is a highly argued area in criminal law. If a governmental agent acts without a search warrant and the search is determined to be an unreasonable search, essentially all evidence the agent finds could be suppressed from the criminal proceeding. That means that the evidence from the search and seizure could be excluded from the criminal case determining whether the defendant is guilty or innocent of a crime.

Want to achieve your New Year’s resolution? Peak performance coach and human behavior expert Tony Robbins says that when someone isn’t achieving their goal, it’s often because they haven’t made it a must. “People give up on achieving their goals because they are ‘shoulds’ and not ‘musts,’” says Robbins. “But when something becomes an absolute must for you, when you cut off any other possibility in your mind, then you will do whatever it takes to achieve your goal.” Too often, people set unrealistic ways to reach their goals, feel disappointed when they have a setback and give up too soon. If you need to lose 50 pounds but haven’t exercised in three years, going out for a 10-mile run isn’t a good way to get started — you’ll only be discouraged. Instead, start with achievable goals. You’ll enjoy consistent successes that create the momentum needed to get you to your goal. Waiting for the calendar to turn to begin on your goals shouldn’t be part of your plan, get a head start now. If you’re starting out with questions, don’t worry - you’re not alone. Tony Robbins is scheduled to appear on QVC Friday, Jan. 14 and Saturday, Jan. 15 to offer the Ultimate Edge program. During the broadcast, Robbins will give you his inside tips and tricks to success.

Huron Hometown News | Thursday, January 20, 2011


Sports Bollenbacher’s Offense, Tiger’s D Overtake Flyers It isn’t news that Brian Bollenbacher was Huron’s leading scorer Saturday night against the visiting Flyers. He is tough, hustles, and a leader the young Tigers looked toward when they need points. In this recent win over Clyde, what he delivered was 28 points despite constantly being shadowed by a Clyde defender. One can only hope his teammates truly appreciate just how hard he has to work on offense sometimes just to get the ball. What is news is the stifling pressure defense the entire team played during the second half that completely took the Flyers out of their offensive game. Cody Thompson, Trae Graham, Kyle Pisano and Bo were absolutely devastating on top. Thompson, just a freshman, played the point of the defense fast and was, as basketball people like to say, long. He was constantly tipping the ball or shutting down the passing lanes. When he got into foul trouble early in the fourth quarter, Graham admirably finished the job. Clyde had 30 points in the first half, but could only muster 16 in the second. They slowed down. They became tentative and

careful with their passes and possessions. Early on, the Flyers literally flew down the floor on offense. Huron tried to keep up but could not finish points. Fortunately, Clyde was not really lighting it up either, otherwise things could have been much worse. The visitors went on an 8-0 run during the middle of the first period, but neither team scored in the final two minutes of the quarter. The Tigers trailed, 14-7. Clyde stretched their lead to 11 with 5:17 left in the first half, forcing Coach James to call time. With a little over two minutes left and trailing by 12, Huron finally mounted an 8-2 rally of their own. Bollenbacher hit two free throws, followed by two from center Aaron Casey. Then, Thompson and Bollenbacher had back-to-back steals for fast break lay-ins to cap off the spurt and close the gap to 30-24 at the break. Following the mini-cheerleaders adorable halftime performance, Bollenbacher came out and lit up Clyde for 17 of Huron’s 26 second half points. During the third period, the Tigers looked like they might not ever close

up that six point gap. But finally, with three and half minutes left in the game, Bollenbacher had converted two more steals to tie the game at 40 a piece. With 1:33 left, Bo hit two free throws to give his team a 45-44 lead. Clyde’s guard, Joey Cooper (24 points) hit a free throw to tie the game again. Huron called time with 1:01 left. The Tigers then came out of the break and immediately shifted into a stall, content to look for that final game winning shot. Bollenbacher was fouled with just :05 left as he attempted a three pointer. He stepped up and hit all three attempts but a lane violation negated the final shot. Clyde called time-out trailing by two points, but in doing so, their coach was hit with technical foul. Despite the Huron missing both of the technical free shots, the Tigers were given the ball back. Aaron Driftmeyer was inexplicably, intentionally fouled on the inbounds play at half court, before the ball even went into play. The sophomore calmly stepped to the line and hit both shots to put the game away, 50 - 46, for the Huron victory.

Brian Bollenbacher pulls up for a jumper against Clyde.

SMCC Stifles Huron in Second Half The recent Huron girls varsity loss to St. Mary’s came down to a matter of ownership, and can be summed up as follows: Lauren Volz owned the first quarter, Devon Koenig owned the second quarter, but the home team Panthers owned the entire second half and thus, the win, 65-60. Tigers Volz and Koenig, by themselves, outscored the SMCC squad 27-26 in the first half of Friday night’s game. But as we all know, a strong half does necessarily win the game. Huron’s point guard Alexis Lemar hit the opening shot. Unfazed, the Panthers went on a 7-0 run. Then Volz took over. She rolled off 11 points over the remaining five minutes of the first quarter bringing her team to within one point of a tie at 15-16. Devon Koenig hit the first bucket of the second quarter to give Huron the lead. The Tiger pressure held SMCC to just 10 points over the next eight

minutes. Over the span of a minute during the second period, Sierra Ward hit two free throws, Volz had a field goal, and Kelsey Koehler had a steal and was fouled, hitting one of two. Then Keonig rebounded Koehler’s missed free throw and powered it in and next time down the court put in another shot to give her team a 33-23 lead with two minutes left to play in the first half. She would hit yet two more shots before the second quarter was done and would end the first half with 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 steals. The Tigers went into the locker room with the momentum and a 37-26 lead. The second half begin with Huron committing foul after foul, and in the span of three and a half minutes had their lead cut to just four points. The Tigers had lost their offensive composure and never really did find it again over the next two quarters. Volz had

two three point plays that allowed the visitors to maintain a slim three-point lead, 48-45 at the end three periods. Lemar and Volz hit back-to-back buckets early in the final quarter to extend the Huron lead by six. Then, following two Panther free throws, Justine Butler hit two of her own. But St. Mary’s found their inside game that scored baskets and forced Tiger fouls. The Panthers rolled off seven unanswered points to take a 56-55 lead with 3:09 left. By this point, Koenig, along with starter Gina Munafo fouled out and Volz had four fouls. Butler gave Huron the lead one last time, albeit briefly, with 2:10 left. That would be the Tiger’s last gasp. Huron would not score again until Volz hit an inconsequential three in the final seconds. Over those last two minutes, the Panthers rolled off nine straight points to put the game away. Volz finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds.

Coach Adam Warner is in charge of Huron’s varsity swim team. This is his first season at the helm. Because Huron doesn’t have its own pool, it has never been an easy job. One must always work around everyone else’s schedules to use an outside facility. But please give these athletes their due because swimming workouts are extremely demanding. Q: How did you become coach of the Huron Swim team? How many kids are on the team? Where do they train? A: I became the coach of the Huron Swim team by answering a newspaper job posting for this position. I applied and got interviewed, then got accepted for the job. There are 21 kids on the team. 9 guys (3 juniors, 4 sophomores, 2 freshman) 11 Girls (1 Senior, 1 Junior, 8 sophomores, 1 freshman). We train at the Sandusky YMCA. Q: Tell me about your coaching experience? A: This is my first year as a Head Coach of a High School Swim team. Before this, I helped out with the Norwalk Park and Rec Summer League Swim team for a couple of years and now will be Coach of that this summer also. Q: When and how did you first become involved in swimming? A: I started swimming in 5th grade with the Norwalk Park and Rec Summer league team, which I did all through High School. I also have participated for Vacationland Swim Team since my Junior Year of High School. I was a part of the Norwalk High School swim team for four years. I went to Hiram College for swimming also and competed there. Q: What are your goals for the team this season? How will you grade whether the season has been a success for you? A: My goals for this season are to get two relay teams and at least two individuals’ events (both guys and girls) to the district meet. I think I will be graded upon how close I get to my goals. If I get more than my goals, it was a great success. The amount we send to Districts will show how we did as a swim team and how successful this year was. Q: Tell us about some of Huron’s strongest swimmers? A: For both the guys and girls teams, we have a strong sophomore class. For the guys, leading this team is the only Huron district qualifier last year in Jon Turner (Soph). He made it in the 200 Individual Medley. Stephen Tomczyk (Soph), Kevin Tomczyk (Fresh), Ryan Brownell (Soph) and Matt Buckingham (Junior) round out our top guys. These five guys compete in all of our “A” relays. I expect Jon and Matt to reach the district competition in their individual events. (Jon in the 200 Individual Medley and Matt in the 100 Breastroke.) The girls are lead by Allison Slocum (Soph). I expect her to make the district competition in both of her individual races, the 200 Individual Medley and the 100 Breastroke. Other hopefuls include Courtney Hart (Soph), Alex Wisehart (Soph), Kayla Hamilton (Soph) and Morgan Mize (Soph), who are a part of the “A” relays for the girl side. With so many underclassmen leading the way, the next couple years will bring a lot of experience and will help us in the long run be successful as a team.

The Sandusky Bay Conference Swim Meet was held this past Saturday. The Huron girls finished 5th out of 6th teams with a score of 23 points. Meanwhile, the guys placed 6th with a score of 61 points. Our girls finished a spot higher, moving from 6th place last year to 5th this year. Coach Warner noted that many of our swimmers got their best times of the season and thought that overall, it was a great meet.

Bridal You’re engaged! Now what? The top five wedding planning questions to answer first The Perfect Place (ARA) - Holiday season is engagement season. But after he pops the question and she says “yes,” the reality of wedding planning sets in - and that feeling of joyful romance can fade as quickly as Christmas lights on an overloaded circuit. Here are the top five questions you will need to answer to make your wedding planning journey a pleasant experience. “After Valentine’s Day, the holidays are the most popular time of year for couples to become engaged,” says wedding planning expert Raymond Miller of My Wedding Reception, a leading online resource for brides seeking unique wedding favors, decorations, and gifts. “Many brides-to-be who get engaged over the holidays will begin their planning efforts in the first months of the new year. Knowing where to start can be overwhelming.” Brides should begin their planning by answering five basic questions, Miller advises. 1. What is our budget? “Funding your wedding can be one of the most expensive undertakings you’ll tackle in your life together as a couple,” Miller says. “Many couples only spend more on buying a house or car, or funding their children’s college educations.” Setting - and sticking to - a budget for your wedding is an essential step toward starting your married life on a sound financial footing. Determine where your funding will come from - if your parents can help or if you’ll be paying on your own - and decide how much you can afford to spend without going into debt. 2. What season works? Virtually as soon as you announce you’re engaged, people start asking what the wedding date will be. To make answering that question as simple as possible, start by considering in what season you would like to be married. Would you prefer a spring ceremony? Or do you dream of a holiday wedding? By narrowing down the season, and selecting it well in advance, you’ll be able to secure a date that will work for everyone. 3. Where do we want to get married and have our reception? Will you have a destination wedding? Or do you want to keep it local? While wedding planning is usually most

Gardening Enjoy A Greenhouse Visit Soon! Mary Strayer Master Gardener, Author These long cold gray days in northern Ohio make me want to be warm, around plants once again, and so I know it’s time to head out to local greenhouses. Each of us has our favorites, and we can almost feel them drawing us into their gardens. January is a great time to choose a new plant, one we have never tired before. Recently I discovered if you are growing a Jade Plant, you could be fortunate enough to see it bloom. I never knew this before, and discovered that the Jade plant blooms when it is large, and the stems are thick. When cold weather comes, water lightly once a month, because the Jade Plant stores water in its leaves and stems. Also keep the plant in a colder room, 60 degrees is fine. It should reward you by being covered with short sprays of ½-3/4” white flowers. I have discovered that succulents are fun to grow, and rather easy to grow as well. Succulents store their own water supply, and only want to be watered once a month, lightly. Make sure the pots drain well, or the roots will rot. Plant succulents

in rather shallow pots to begin with and only move up gradually as the plant grows. Succulents prefer a bright sunny window, and fast draining soil. Water once every 1-2 weeks, and be certain that the soil dries out completely before adding more water. I feed my succulents monthly with liquid house plant fertilizer. These fertilizers are available in all greenhouses, and in many general merchandise stores. One succulent that I enjoy watching grow is Echeveria. This is a mysterious plant in a way, with hairy stems and leaves, and it blooms beautifully with mid-orange tube shape flowers in the summer months. If the plant gets too large, or you just want babies, a branch may be taken off, inserted in a root hormone, and planted. In about 2 weeks roots will have formed and you have a new plant. Enjoy looking at new houseplants, and seeing live growing plants again soon, it will brighten your day, and help you get through these cold months. Happy Gardening.
